Plot: Haruka lost her mother at a young age. While her mother was still alive, she received a hand mirror from her. After her mother's death, she forgot about the mirror and eventually lost it. One day, she decides to go to a local shrine and pray for the hand mirror to be returned to her. It is there that she accidentally encounters a small masked creature which she secretly follows to the land of forgotten items.
Cool animations by Production I.G.
The story is pretty OK, but not as good as Journey To Agartha!
First off, the animation on this film is brilliant. It's really got moments of sheer awe, the film is a sort of mix of 2.5D/3D backgrounds and 3D character models which looks very unique. However this is also one of the problems with the film, its visuals often outmatch many other elements of the film in particular the storyline and characterisation. I definitely think the characters could have been developed more, Haruka should had more screen time in the real world rather than on oblivion island. Her relationship with her father should have been explored more at the start of the film, it just equates him with working a lot and being too lazy to clean up after himself, drinking Haruka's drink etc This leads on the second point in that the film is rather content to stay within the cliches of a childrens film/tv-series, the film relies on rather underdeveloped trivial issues in the beginning of the film like the characterisation of Haruka's father and the focus of Dio's bullies who are some sort of gang who take prominence in the first half of the film. It's never really explained why the gang are out to get Dio at all except they find Haruka accompanying him as suspicious. Basically the gang don't really need to exist except for some tension chase scenes.
Yes I might be being harsh on this film as it is afterall targeted towards kids but enjoyable for anybody to watch.Read more ›
Reach out for that toy you had as a child!
Just forget it's cgi and enjoy it :)
What other island can boast it's actually twinned with Gunkanjima!!

This film was quite good but not a proper drawn anime like I thought it would be but cgi (computerised). But the story itself was good and had a good ending.Published on 22 May 2013 by Hodge
It's about time this came out in English. We've had the Russian translation for a few years and it's our favourite animation. Even better than Studio Ghibli.Published on 5 May 2013 by Masha
